I made a lot of my book pretty wordy, but I wanted it to serve as a photo/journal book of Eli's first year. I recorded all his monthly milestones as well as funny stories or family happenings throughout the year.
I referenced my blog a lot while putting this book together. Again, another reason I am thankful that I have this ole blog.
I tried to mix up the layouts as best as I could. I didn't want every page to look the same, but I also wanted some sort of uniformity throughout the book.
I've had the book done for awhile, but with it being 109 pages, I knew it would be expensive. I waited until I had a great offer through MixBook (which they have often) and I had enough money set aside to get it.
I finally got it Tuesday of this week and I've looked at it a million times already. Eli sits down with me and looks through it also, which is so sweet.
Then he tries to grab it and throw it and screams when I won't give it to him.
I need to start working on his 2nd book. I haven't taken as many pictures this year, I need to get better about that!
It was a lot of work and time but I am so happy that I made this book. I know we will treasure it.
